Our courts are entitled to review all laws, including delegated legislation (regulations, notices, directives, etc), if they are not clear, comprehensible, accessible and predictable in their application. Vague, unclear and incomprehensible legislation may be struck down as contrary to the rule of law.

In MEC for Education, Gauteng v Fedsas the court struck some and upheld some of the Gauteng Regulations on Admission of Learners to Public Schools. The court also reiterated the principles for the harmonious application of legislation relating to schools and the respective powers of the relevant government functionaries and school governing bodies.
